YTLive Performances on YouTube

George Duke | Rufus & Chaka Khan | Mica Paris

Soul/Funk

George Duke (a favorite!)

A monster musician, George Duke has been a favorite of mine for decades. Who else can write brilliant pop tunes steeped in funk AND authentic brazilian grooves and sing and play his #ss off?! A totally unique talent--I was hooked ages ago from his early BASF records. His Mini-moog playing and his touch on the pitch bend wheel is unparallaled.

He's a ham onstage too as some of these videos demonstrate. Even with his enormous talent, he never takes himself too seriously. Always having a good time, his light-hearted nature was inextingishable and contagious! ENJOY...
